Summary: It triggers the "This application may not have installed correctly" errors from Windows 7 every single time the "wizard" app exits. Not confidence inspiring if you're relying on it for security.
Pros: Seems like good hardware. It feels solid, and the video looks quite good. Nice long power cord. The white parts are very white and the black parts are very shiny black.
Cons: Some really bad software and processes. Multiply cursed by:
Pros: ok, but not great, resolution for the price range, good range of motion
Cons: requires java-enabled browser and won't work natively with browsers on IOS devices. Allegedly, D-Link's software is supposed to make images visible on IOS devices, but I haven't tried. Why should I waste my time with an app when competitors' products work fine in the native browser?
Cool ip camera misleading microSD and smartphone app

Summary: My biggest frustration is that I bought an SDHC 16GB card for the unit. It wouldnt detect it, I pulled out my android 16GB and had the same problem. I found an older 2GB non SDHC and it worked. I am a bit puzzled that a newer device like this would not support SDHC cards. No where is this documented.
Pros: I like the concept of the camera. The idea of a smartphone app interface and I like the way it gets initially setup
Cons: It was a struggle to get my computer to properly work with Java. Before I updated Java from 6 to 7, I could see video on the computer but it kept saying to update over and over. I updated and then lost the function. I had to go back to java settings and revert to version 6.
Summary: Not sure if Costco repackaged the camera and sold it as a refurbished item. It was missing the installation CD as well as the instruction manual. It also did not link up as easy as the other reviewers said that it did. Perhaps this was due to the fact that it was used. The camera and the router did not connect at all. Disappointed, this item was returned to Costco within 3 hours.
